American rock’n’roll band Rival Sons have announced the release of new single ‘Shooting Stars’ ahead of their return to the UK this November for five shows.
Those dates include their biggest headline show in London to date at the legendary Brixton Academy.
The single is taken from their wildly popular new album, Feral Roots, which was released in January via Low Country Sound/Atlantic Records and gave the band their highest UK chart position to date at #12.
Listen to ‘Shooting Stars’ by Rival Sons on the Official Premier League Music playlist on Spotify.
Feral Roots was produced by GRAMMY Award-winner Dave Cobb at Nashville’s famed RCA Studio A, and the equally legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Muscle Shoals, AL, and has already brought the band their first #1 single in the USA at rock radio, with the song, ‘Do Your Worst’.
The primal intensity of Feral Roots reflects a certain unrest at the heart of the album, sparked by vocalist Jay Buchanan’s recent move to Tennessee.
“I’m working to reconcile my dirt-road DNA with our growing dependency on technology and the over-communication that comes with that,” noted Buchanan. “We’re surrounded by and are subordinate to our own creation. I looked to the undomesticated nature that lies dormant beneath our civil choreography, to what created us.”
